Awesome Autumn

From the Whisk Kitchen

Roasted Harvest Vegetables

Servings: 6–8

Wonderful vegetable flavors combine in this colorful dish that will be a beautiful and delicious addition to the Thanksgiving table. We’ve taken a few classic autumn vegetables and roasted them to perfection. Choose your favorite squash—we used butternut squash, Brussels sprouts and piquant cranberries.

This dish just may outshine the turkey!


1 butternut squash, 3/4-inch dice

1/2 pound Brussels sprouts, halved

5 ounces cranberries, fresh (or frozen and thawed)

1 shallot, diced

3 tablespoons olive oil for roasting

Kosher salt and pepper

1/4 cup walnut pieces


3 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Pinch of kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1 teaspoon honey


1. Preheat oven to 425 F.

2. Prepare the butternut squash. First, remove both ends. Cut squash in half at the waist, remove the peel and scoop out the seeds and fibers. Dice by cutting the squash pieces into 3/4-inch slices, then cross-cut into cubes.

3. Wash and prepare Brussels sprouts. Peel off loose leaves, chop off stalk end and slice in half.

4. On a large baking sheet pan, spread butternut squash in a single layer and drizzle with the olive oil, Kosher salt and pepper. Roast in the oven, (stirring every 10 minutes or so) until the cubes begin to caramelize and brown, about 25 minutes. Roast in batches if necessary. If the sheet pan is too full, the vegetables will steam instead of roast. Set the roasted squash aside in a large bowl.

5. Next, roast the Brussels sprouts, cranberries and shallots. Similarly spread out on the sheet pan, drizzle with olive oil, kosher salt and pepper. Roast for 30-40 minutes until browned. Add these roasted veggies to the bowl with the squash.

6. Whisk the dressing together, and carefully toss with roasted vegetables.

7. Top with the walnut pieces and serve hot.
